Honey Lemon Chicken

My family loves this chicken and it's healthy too! Even the 2 year old ate it with out ANY whining.

honey lemon chicken:

5 chicken breast halves
1/3 C. Honey
1/4 C. Lemon Juice
2 tsp. dried Rosemary leaves, crushed
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
Combine honey, lemon juice, rosemary and crushed red pepper. Pour over chicken and baked uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.

My tips:
  • I like to turn my chicken over half way through the cooking time.
  • I only use 1/2 tsp. of rosemary, because I'm not a huge fan of it.
  • The last 5 minutes of cooking I drizzle a little extra honey on top of the chicken to give it a little crust.
I love to have leftovers because this chicken and sauce is amazing in a salad. I like to add just a drop of ranch for the creamy texture and use the honey sauce for the rest of the dressing.

your guest chef,
